Authorities are searching for a missing 11-year-old girl last seen wearing fuzzy Christmas pajamas and a pink John Deere t-shirt, and they have charged a registered child sex offender in her disappearance.

Thomas J. Leggs Jr. of Salisbury, has been charged with burglary and with kidnapping Sarah H. Foxwell, according to new reports.

Sarah was last seen Tuesday night at her home on the Eastern Shore. Sarah is white, 4-foot-8 and weighs 78 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. When she disappeared, she was wearing red fuzzy pajama bottoms with Christmas trees on them and a pink John Deere T-shirt.

Leggs is listed on the Maryland and Delaware sex offender registries. The Maryland listing indicates that he is a child sex offender.   In 2001, Leggs was convicted in Delaware of rape for having sex with a victim who was 16 or 17, according to the Delaware registry. The registry describes his risk level as “high” and notes he is unemployed.
